Wow, reminds me of a Pentium Pro. That's a ton of surface area of cooling too.

That was my first thought too, but that thing probably has the Pro beat by another 50%

It looks like a Xeon Phi socket, to my eyes. They're gargantuan.

Both LGA-3647 and these sockets are huge, but the numbers I've seen indicate these guys have over 4000 pins, so AMD wins the socket size battle.

Looks like we are heading back towards processors the size of a Slot 1 / Slot A cartridge. Except instead of contacts along one edge, it's contacts covering one entire side.

I was thinking something similar. It reminds me of the Pentium Pro!

When I saw, "socket of unusual size" my mind went immediately to "The Princess Bride."

Is the new motherboard going to be called "The Fire Swamp"?

The socket just poops out a torrent of AM3+ motherboards if you do. And they're all covered in mucus, so you can't even use them 'til they dry out.
